Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the Bay and then the valley and came to Chico in 1997
a newlywed and CSUC transfer student. In 2008 I finished my work on
my Master's in English with a focus on creative writing (I also
have BAs in English and in Asian Studies).
I'm a nerdy, liberal, slightly introverted guy. Grew up reading
comics and playing RPGs. Still enjoy a little of each as well as a
little Playstation time with my kids. I LOVE to sing and try to go
to karaoke every week if I can. I also love the ocean and try to
visit it whenever I can.
I have primary custody of my four charming, healthy and intelligent
children. They are with their mother on weekends, freeing those
days up for all the kid-free dating and fun to be had
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Editing my book. Activism. Blogging at Bisexual Books. Doing my
best to balance multiple non-overlapping social circles, be the
best dad I can be and do my best to better myself and to enjoy life
as I go.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Figuring out the endings to movies before the opening credits have
finished rolling, being diplomatic, listening, cooking, being a
dad. . .
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Best book: Rather than name titles, I'll toss out a good many of
the authors I read: Stephen King, Chuck Palahniuk, Clive Barker,
Patricia Briggs, George RR Martin. . .I grew up centered on fantasy
and horror fiction, but I have a basic enjoyment of most anything
good. I also read and do book reviews for Bisexual Books.
Best movie: I'm a huge cinema fan. I love movies. I have favorites
in every genre.
Best music: The Pixies, Queen, Nirvana, the Decemberists, Frank
Turner, Matt & Kim, Blink 182, Green Day, Foo Fighters,
Throwing Muses, the Lemonheads, Dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip, De La
Soul, Social Distortion, the Descendents, Rise Against, Tom
Petty... clearly I have a stronger connection with rock and punk,
but I have soft spots for most all music.
Best food: Mexican, Thai, Chinese, Cherries, Coconut.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my kids & friends, music, a cold drink, kinksters, internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about my kids and whether I'm a good dad. I think about
romance and finding someone. I think about non-traditional
families. I think about writing and improving my health and how I
need to do more of both of these things. I think about candle wax,
and rope, and meteors, and what exactly I can do to survive the
zombie apocalypse. And so very much else. I think about how nice it
would be to just take a break from thinking for a while.
And I think about you; I wonder what you see when you're reading
me, when you're meeting me; I wonder what makes you tick.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I go out from time to time, but I mostly like to relax at home. Two
Fridays per month I'm spending the night working. Now
Saturdays--Saturdays are for karaoke.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
